Pismo Beach / Morro Bay
- Tom Armitage
This coming weekend I'll be in the general area of
Pismo Beach and Morro Bay. Any suggestions for
chowhounding, other than the Santa Maria BBQ places?
Pismo has a fun/funky place where we went last yr. for
steamed clams--clams being the signature food of Pismo.
They were excellent and cheap. It was just off the
street leading to the pier, I can't think of the
name--only about a block from the water.
You will be in striking distance of everything from
Arroyo Grande to Cayucos, including SLO. The SLO
Saturday Farmer's Mkt is a good bet.
re: Dave Feldman
Thanks, Dave and George, for your suggestions. Dave,
Jocko's in Nipomo is still going strong and, along with
the two Hitching Post restaurants, is among the
contenders for the "best" Santa Maria barbeque.
George, I'll try to scout out the clam place in Pimso
Beach. I love a good bucket of steamers. I've also
heard from several sources that the farmers' market in
SLO is a good one.

SLO farmers market IS pretty good but it's on Thursday
evenings... the casual visitor can pick up great fresh
and dried fruit and other travel snacks... many
barbeque stands to choose from, but I wasn't too
Santa Barbara has a nice small farmers market on
Fridays... great flowers at cheap prices, perfect to
spruce up your motel/hotel/b&b room!
